MVP Health Care Addiction Treatment
What is Addiction?
The American Society of Addiction Medicine defines addiction as a "primary, chronic disease of brain reward, motivation, memory and related circuitry." When these circuits fail to function properly, they lead to a series of symptoms that manifest themselves in emotional, biological, social, and even spiritual ways.
Perhaps more simply put, addiction is the inability to stop using a substance that is negatively impact physical health, personal relationships, and other areas of one's life. While addiction is often associated with the abuse of drugs or alcohol, there are also behavior-based addictions like gambling, video games, and Internet or computers.

If you or a loved one is struggling with addiction, your MVP Health Care addiction recovery coverage may offer the key to long-term rehabilitation.
Choosing Inpatient Rehab vs. Outpatient Care
The addiction treatment facilities in which you choose to receive treatment may depend on what type of treatment your MVP Health Care addiction recovery guidelines provide for, but for the most part you'll have the option of either inpatient or outpatient rehab.
- Inpatient addiction treatment centers offer round-the-clock care in a safe, secure environment far removed from the distractions and temptations of the outside world. Though inpatient stays cost more than outpatient care, patients have access to support groups, treatments, and a team of medical professionals all under one roof.
- Outpatient facilities still offer comprehensive care options but they also provide far more flexibility than a residential facility. Patients who need the freedom to come and go as they please in order to take care of obligations at work, home, or school, might benefit from an outpatient situation.
Both options will most likely incorporate therapy options that will address your emotional needs and help you to redirect negative behaviors in a more positive fashion.
How Much Will Recovery Cost?
Addiction coverage changes from provider to provider and one company may offer several types of coverage under one umbrella. Your MVP Health Care addiction recovery may be paid for in part, in full, or, depending on the circumstances, not at all – it all depends on the policy you hold and the type of treatment or diagnosis you've been given. Many addiction facilities have a financial advisor on staff who will help you determine the extent of your benefits before committing to a course of treatment so you can concentrate on your recovery instead of on financial concerns.
